The 49th and penultimate instalment in my series of Kiss reviews, all leading up to the release of Monster!
KISS – Icon and Icon 2 (2010)
OK, this is where I lose it!
Fuck you, The Island Def Jam Music Group, for putting out these discs! These suck!
Kiss Icon: IDENTICAL to 20th Century Masters – The Millenium Collection: The Best of Kiss Vol. 1. Exactly the same, track for track. Without the liner notes, and suckier cover art.
Kiss Icon 2: This time, a 2 disc set. Logically, you’d assume it would be Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 of the Millenium Collection, right? Well, hell no. It has some of those songs, but it also has songs that weren’t on those, like “A World Without Heroes” and “Shandi”. But…BUT! The first disc of this set? It’s just Icon over again! Yes, disc 1 of Icon 2 is just Icon, over again! But it doesn’t tell you that. It also has an incorrect song listed! The cover says “Shout It Out Loud (Live)” is the last track of disc 1. But no. The last track on disc 1 actually is “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”, just like the Millenium Collection.
But wait, I ain’t done! Disc 2, track 1, is “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”…AGAIN!
GAHHH! Just…stop putting this shit out!
